The northernmost of Perhentian Kecil’s developed beaches, the very long-running (20+ years) family-run d’Lagoon offers a range of options from dormitories to duplex bungalows to fancier deluxe bungalows.

Photo of D'Lagoon
The bungalows (they’re named individually after sea creatures -- we had prawn) are, all in all, pretty ordinary and the bathrooms in particular are pretty ropey and in need of a revamp, but you don’t stay at D’Lagoon for the rooms -- nor the restaurant in fact, which is also pretty poor. Why you stay here used to be for the front bay snorkelling and the two back beaches, and while the front bay snorkelling has suffered considerably over the years, the back beaches (Turtle beach and Adam and Eve beach), are so gorgeous we’d go as far as to say they make a stay at D’Lagoon mandatory. Turtle Beach is a 10-minute walk away and Adam & Eve around 20 minutes, both along a rustic and hilly-in-places dirt trail, but they are absolutely pristine. Back at the resort, electricity is available throughout the day, but there are no power points in the room -- all your charging needs to be done in the restaurant. Snorkelling gear can be hired (15 ringgit for a full set) and there is also an attached dive shop and ATVs for rental should you want to take a short spin through the woods behind the resort. The same family who were running the place when we first stayed here in 1997 are still here -- they can be very friendly, but sometimes it takes a day or two for them to warm up. The dorm is a good deal here. You can hike from D’lagoon to Long beach, but it is a long and strenuous walk that takes well over an hour while a boat taxi is 15 ringgit.
